Google’s Translatotron converts one spoken language to another, no text involved | TechCrunch

Every day we creep a little closer to Douglas Adams’ famous and prescient Babel fish. A new research project from Google takes spoken sentences in one language and outputs spoken words in another — but unlike most translation techniques, it uses no intermediate text, working solely with the audio. This makes it quick, but more importantly lets it more easily reflect the cadence and tone of the speaker’s voice.

Sometimes I feel depressed about learning English.


It doesn't give me the feedback I expected even though I spend a lot of time learning. The TOEIC grade has been stuck at 500-600 range for a long time, which consumes me with self doubt. Did I get the method wrong? Or should I take lessons with a cram school? I am confused.

Few hours later, I got a message from a LingQ user, she corrected the paragraph and said: you're doing great keep practicing. I thank her for the encouragement.

What I dislike about the federation


I have been noticing since a while there is a very impolite attitude among many people who use the federated networks, the lacking of desire to build a community that include all the other ones from all the different countries and languages.

Many times I see posts that starting in English which is the most common ground to communicate among the others that end filled up in any others languages than English, along the fact that is unkindly and annoying, it goes in the opposite way of the inclusion which should be the reason why a social network exists.

It is true that Mastodon resolved it brilliantly but in Diaspora and Friendica you can't exclude topics because the language that means is up to the users take the task to avoid cross languages in any topic.

However I see there isn't any desire to avoid that behavior and people are quite careless about that, hence I think I will start to ignore all the people that do not respect this very simple, unwritten and basic rule.

Hey everyone, I’m not exactly #newhere, because I've been lurking and commenting for a while, but I think it is time to get this first post done. I’m interested in #amateurradio, #arduino, #baking, #bikes, #chinese, #chocolate, #cooking, #electronics, #ev, #ghibli, #ham, #hamradio, #japan, #languages, #motorcycle, #nkust, #raspberrypi, #taiwan, #台灣, and #高科大. I am interested in a few more things, but I don't for example like to be notified multiple times that a new version X of Linux distribution Y is out, for me it's simply my standard OS to work with, not a toy.

I still need to refine the tags I'm following, but I guess those are fluid anyway. I will also need to experiment a bit with posting options, so apologies if the first posts are a little barebone. And I hope this will be fun...

so, we have opened a fucking #collaborative #blog, where anyone can #participate by writing #content via #gitlab or #email -> http://blog.unitoo.pw/

currently the #rules is written only in #Italian and @Claudio Maradonna would like the posts to be only in Italian -> https://gitlab.com/unitoo/unitoo-blog/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md
but anyone who understands the regulation can write, at least in #English, and #contribute
maybe someone will #translate it into other #languages as well... Italian included XD
